Notes

If you’re not a fan of pineapple, make the salsa using peaches or mango.
Use any leftover shredded chicken to make burritos, quesadillas and even salads.
Store the toppings separately in the fridge for 4-5 days. Reheat the chicken then assemble your tacos fresh.
Freeze the chicken for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight then reheat as normal.
